Radar Beacon - Respondent (SART-AIS)
The radar beacon responder is the primary means of detecting the location of rescue equipment directly in the disaster area. The vessel must have at least two SART, usually located on the navigating bridge.
When leaving the vessel, the SART is installed in a boat or raft in a special mount, after which it is turned on and in standby mode.
When the SART receiver is irradiated by the radar pulse of a rescue vessel, it begins to emit a response signal, signaling this by sending a sound and light signal.
The SART signal on the radar screen of the search vessel is indicated by a series of points (12 or 20) located at equal distances from each other, and is also displayed on the electronic map. The detection range of the SART shipborne radar is at least 5 miles; Radar aircraft located at an altitude of 1 km - 30 miles.
SART can withstand dropping into the water from a height of 20 meters, waterproof at a depth of 10 meters.
The battery capacity is designed to work in standby mode - 96 hours, in the radiation mode - 8 hours.
Easy to operate by untrained staff.
